Almost all dogs have occasional bouts of runny stools or diarrhoea which clear up in a few days. Colitis is very different though, and dogs with this condition often experience recurring and severe bouts of diarrhoea (often containing blood and mucus) and it's common for pooches to lose weight as a result. If your vet has diagnosed your dog with colitis, they'll often recommend a change in diet.
Feeding a diet which is high in fibre alongside plenty of fresh water is key to managing colitis - when broken down, fibre provides beneficial bacteria for the colon along with nutrients for the cells to keep tissue nice and healthy.
Our meals contain a good amount of insoluble and soluble fibre in the veg, lentils, and flaxseed, so they should be ideal for your dog.
However, in more severe cases of colitis, some dogs require anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressive medication to manage the root of the problem. With cases like this, we'd always recommend chatting with your vet before changing your dog's diet.
